Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy [ESWT] (either Radial or Focused), is a safe and non-surgical treatment for multiple tendon injuries. At Spinefit Chiropractic, the shockwave programme is in-line with our non-surgical integrated approach in treating our Practice Members that have sporting or overuse injuries.
During the treatment, Practice Members will benefit from the formation of new blood vessels (neo-vascularization) through the application of high-energy acoustic waves at the targeted area. The body responds by increasing blood circulation and metabolic activity around the targeted area which in turn accelerates the body’s own healing processes. This eventually leads to the reduction of pain as well as the repair of tendon, ligaments and bone.
Conditions that would be suitable for this treatment include “tennis” elbow, “golfer’s” elbow, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, sprained ankle and wrist, osteoarthritis and much more.
